back in 1998. that night he was being hosted by then-president bill clinton who at the time was in the middle of the monica lewinsky scandal. shortly after the news came that the south african leader had died, president clinton released a statement saying in part, he proved there is freedom in forgiving, that a big heart is better than a closed mind, and that real victories must be shared. later in a tweet, hillary clinton said, nelson mandela was a champion for justice and museum dignity with unmatched grace. i'll remember him as madiba. good to talk to you, salinda, good morning. you called him one of the most courageous people i have ever met. tell us about your meeting with him, with working with him, and what you want people to know. >> well, i was just part of a very big meeting, and i met with him once in a strategy session and once heard him deliver a speech in south africa. but having him work with his team and the pollster for the anc during that first election, there were three things that really struck me. one was just his enormous clarity and vision for the country and bri

. 90 world leaders in the crowd, including president clinton, secretary clinton, and their daughter, chelsea, along with former presidents bush and president carter. the president's speech, part remembrance, part call to action to follow nelson mandela's example. >> around the world today, men and women are still imprisoned for their political beliefs and are still persecuted for what they look like and how they worship and who they love. that is happening today. and so we too must act on behalf of justice. >> i want to bring in our company. char lane hunter galt and mark. good morning to both of you. we saw thousands of people in addition to those 90 plus world leaders who walked in the rain, who sat for hours in a driving rain. describe for us the feeling, the emotion there. >> well, it's been going on all week but i think it reached a peak today at the stadium where people saw all of the heads of state coming from all over the world, which just reinforced their own appreciation of nelson mandela. i think that when president obama spoke he spoke to them as a son of africa. at leas

hillary clinton. presidents bill clin taund jton jimmy carter are making their way separately. they're planning to attend a massive memorial service for nelson mandela tomorrow. ron allen is outside mandela's former home. ron, good day to you. what kind of preparations are being made to accommodate everything that's going to be going on over the next 24 to 48 hours or so? >> reporter: well, the south african government is under a lot of pressure because this may be one of the biggest gatherings of world leaders ever. it's hard to estimate the crowd size, the stadium where the memorial service will be held. seats some 80,000 people. but i've got to believe there's going to be tens of thousands if not hundreds of thousands of people trying to get near this event. this entire country, if not the world, is consumed by the death of nelson mandela. we're here across the street from the home that's been the family's home for several decades. behind me perhaps you can see there's a little crowd gathering now. there have been surges of people coming here throughout the past few days since mr. m
